Intermittent Slow Loading CDN Issue

4:50 UTC February 28 –  The CDN for all sites in Production Mode has been re-enabled over the past 4 hours. We appreciate your patience on this issue. If you have any questions, please contact the Help Desk:

23:21 UTC February 27 – Our CDN provider reports that they have resolved the issue. The Pressable systems team will begin reactivating the CDN later this evening for those who had them deactivated earlier.

20:21 UTC / February 27 – Our CDN provider reports that they have isolated this issue to a single router. They have assured us that resolving the issue remains a high priority. In the meantime, we have begun disabling the CDN on a limited number of sites as a short term solution. So far, CDN deactivation has had a minimal impact on server performance, and our systems team has decided to continue with the deactivation of the CDN on additional server pools. We must stress that this is a temporary measure and that we are actively evaluating other options – both medium and long term – to solve for this issue. As always, we thank you again for your continued patience and understanding.

18:24 UTC / February 27 – This issue continues to impact several sites on our platform intermittently. While we remain in contact with our CDN provider to resolve this issue, we have begun exploring alternative measures. As soon as we have more information, we will update here. In the meantime, we greatly appreciate your patience and understanding.

14:29 UTC / February 26 – We continue to work with our CDN provider to address this issue. We have reiterated the urgency of having this issue resolved as soon as possible to our provider. If you detect assets from our CDN URLs ( https://* ) taking significant amounts of time to load or not loading at all, we recommend turning off Production Mode for the time being. We thank you for your continued patience.

1:17 UTC / February 26 – We are still working with our CDN provider to determine what is causing some of our sites to experience longer response and load times. We will continue to update this page as new information is available.

16:24 UTC / February 25 – Our systems team has begun investigating an intermittent issue we are seeing with our CDN provider. In some cases, we are noticing sites take longer to respond and load due to a delay in retrieving images from our CDN provider. We will update this status page as new information is available.

With our PHP upgrade from  7.0.25 to 7.0.26 , we have discovered an issue with the NextGEN Gallery plugin. The PHP upgrade is causing a PHP Fatal error and Segfault with this particular plugin. We have found this to be a reported issue on the plugin’s support forums as well:

After discussions with the plugin’s developers. we found the bug to be within the PHP release itself and not the actual plugin. We are currently in process of reverting back to an earlier version of PHP to avoid this issue until a new release is out with a fix.
